If taking care of your skin is important to you, chances are you spend a good deal of money on skin-care products. We'd like you to know that you don't have to spend lots of cash to get gentle, good quality facial-care products. Instead, you can buy Trader Joe's Nourish All-In-One Facial Cleanser for a mere $5.99 for each 8.45 ounce pump bottle.
This All-In-One Facial Cleanser is the result of a close collaboration between Trader Joe's and a dermatologist. This doctor sells a similar cleanser, with fewer antioxidants than ours, for about four times our price. The major difference? Brand names and marketing. Obviously, we don't spend a whole lot of money on marketing. And while we consider our brand name to be valuable, it's not a "big brand" in the skin-care industry.
Here's what we think is important about this Facial Cleanser: it's extremely gentle, and leaves your skin feeling wonderfully clean, without any tight, dry feeling. Our panel of testers (not tasters, in this case) gave it glowing reviews, and were wowed by the value its $5.99 price tag represents. Why spend $20 when you can get really excellent quality skin care from Trader Joe's Nourish All-In-One Facial Cleanser for just $5.99, every day?
